Filtered Rover Audio (rover noise has been reduced)​

Original Audio (with rover noise)​

This set of sounds from the surface of Mars were recorded by the microphone on the side of NASA’s Perseverance Rover on Feb. 20, 2021. In the first set, sounds from the rover itself dominate. In the second set, the sound was filtered to make sounds from Mars more audible. You can hear a little wind in the second set.

This is the first time a Mars rover has been equipped with a microphone.
